JBL’s Link View voice-controlled, smart display speaker with Google Assistant and a camera built in is now available in Australia for $349.

The JBL Link View is not only a wireless, networkable powered loudspeaker system, it also has a 200mm high-definition touch-screen display and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera so users can not only use it to listen to streamed audio but also to view pictures and video, ask questions, read recipes, and video call with family and friends, with all functions controlled by voice commands.

When we launched the LINK series last year it represented a major milestone for us, as the first voice-activated, multi-room speakers to use the Google Assistant and deliver Grammy award-winning JBL sound,’ says Marcus Fry, of JBL Australia/New Zealand. ‘Research shows that sixty per cent of owners consider their voice-activated speakers a necessity, so by further enhancing their experience by adding HD display with a touch screen and a front-facing camera, people will find even more ways to make these speakers an important part of their lives, routines and enjoyment.’

The Link View has a small footprint, so it takes up minimal counter space, and the enclosure is made using premium materials that are easy to wipe clean. For those who’d like a multi-room listening experience, multiple JBL Link models can be linked together.
